Mitch McConnell's Primary Opponent Loves the Constitution So Much, He Can't Remember It

On Constitution Day, one candidate reminded us all why there is a Constitution Day. Matt Bevin, the Republican primary challenger to U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), forgot that Article Five of the U.S. Constitution is not the same as the Fifth Amendment, which is located in the Bill of Rights. Worse yet, he clearly did not know the purpose of Article Five. As he is running for office, let alone federal office, this is something he might want to consider learning.

2. Article V -- Ya' wanna propose an amendment?

Article V

The Congress, whenever two thirds of both houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose amendments to this Constitution, or, on the application of the legislatures of two thirds of the several states, shall call a convention for proposing amendments, which, in either case, shall be valid to all intents and purposes, as part of this Constitution, when ratified by the legislatures of three fourths of the several states, or by conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other mode of ratification may be proposed by the Congress; provided that no amendment which may be made prior to the year one thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any manner affect the first and fourth clauses in the ninth section of the first article; and that no state, without its consent, shall be deprived of its equal suffrage in the Senate
